Funny People, Twitter Style

This week Rolling Stone published a piece about The 25 Funniest People on Twitter.  I’m not exactly sure how they qualified the funny, but I bet it was something very scientific….maybe a measurements of decibels of laughs or ounces of milk expelled from one’s nose during a fit of Tweet-induced giggles.  SCIENCE!

Here’s their list:

  • Rob Delaney @robdelaney
  • Stephen Colbert @stephenathome
  • Sarah Silverman @sarahksilverman
  • Patton Oswalt @pattonoswalt
  • Tracy Morgan @RealTracyMorgan
  • Lena Dunham @lenadunham
  • Joan Rivers @Joan_Rivers
  • Kelly Oxford @kellyoxford
  • Sean Tejaratchi @ShittingtonUK
  • Julieanne Smolinski @boobsradley (Ed. note: Julieanne wins for best handle.)
  • George Wallace @MrGeorgeWallace
  • Tom Scharpling @tscharpling
  • Michael Ian Black @michaelianblack
  • Morgan Murphy @morgan_murphy
